Fluctuation anaLysis calculator: A web tool for the determination of mutation rate using Luria-Delbück fluctuation analysis

Academic Article


  • The program Fluctuation AnaLysis CalculatOR (FALCOR) is a web tool designed for use with Luria-Delbrück fluctuation analysis to calculate the frequency and rate from various mutation assays in bacteria and yeast. Three calculation methods are available through this program: (i) Ma-Sandri-Sarkar Maximum Likelihood Estimator (MSS-MLE) method, (ii) Lea-Coulson method of the median (LC) and (iii) frequency. © The Author 2009.
